Some good research on statin drugs
Mark Hyman, MD
For so long we were told that having low LDL cholesterol is the key to preventing heart disease, which led to doctors overprescribing statins to keep LDL low. Yet these drugs can introduce a whole host of problems including muscle damage, memory issues, Parkinson’s-like symptoms, and muscle aches and pains. We now know that statins can increase the risk of diabetes by about 50 percent. Even more concerning, is that statins don’t even work that well for preventing heart attacks, despite all the media hype and your doctor’s advice.
That’s not to say that statins are useless. Statins can be lifesaving in some situations, but why aren’t physicians focusing on lifestyle and lowering inflammation? These are far more powerful tactics when it comes to prevention.
In the newest episode of The Doctor's Farmacy, I sit down with cardiologist Aseem Malhotra, one of the most influential and well-known health campaigners, and a pioneer of the lifestyle medicine movement in the UK. If you or anyone you know is concerned about heart health, you won’t want to miss this episode. Watch our full conversation in my Episodes playlist or listen at

The spirit always knows says an old healer of the soul...
It's not your back that hurts, but the burden.
It's not your eyes that hurt, but injustice.
It's not your head that hurts, it's your thoughts.
It's not the throat that hurts but what you don't express or say with anger.
It's not the stomach that hurts but what the soul does not digest.
It's not the liver that hurts, it's the anger.
It's not your heart that hurts, but a lack of love.
And it is love itself that contains the most powerful medicine.
